Seeking information on these Simmons - especially Ida who married Robert Joshua Presley ENGLISH 16 Jun 1881 in Wood Co Tx. Her mother Eliza [maiden name unknown] apparently died before 1880 as Ida was adopted by Augustus JONES by then. Ida's father was not living with her mother in 1870 so it is possible he was dead or they were divorced. I have no information about him at all.
